Gaza missile falls near Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv

An old Chinese proverb says, 'The darkest place is under the lamp.' How is it that it took so long to realise that if your contact with the rest of the world relies on one airport only, you can't play the role of a great power. If Netanyahu had thought about this, perhaps he would think twice before attacking Gaza. A territory with no political presence can be a danger for powerful but teeny-tiny Israel because one must have not only military power but sufficient territories to develop their strategies. Israel had many occasions to make peace with Arab neighbours. Now stop treating West Bank and Gaza as helpless dwarves.
